Samantha Cameron Wears Roksanda Illincic and Burberry for White House Official Visit

The British are coming! Well the Brit designers, that is, judging by Samantha Cameron's outfits so far on the Prime Minister's official tour of Washington. The PM's wife stepped off the plane earlier today wearing a navy Burberry jacket paired with Joseph peg trousers.

And as you'd expect from the head of the British Fashion Council, when she unbuttoned her jacket later, Samantha was wearing a Roksanda Ilincic top we've previously seen her in at the close of London Fashion Week.

The vibrant pink top was fitting for the sporty theme of Samantha's first appointment with Michelle Obama. Whilst the men went to sit court side at a basketball game in key swing state Ohio, the women attended a mini Olympics event with local school kids to raise awareness of the First Lady's anti-obesity campaign. They then met students from The Elizabeth Garrett school in North London who Michelle has invited to the White House after mentoring them on her last two trips to the UK.

And if Samantha was - and we've heard will continue to support British designers - The First Lady was doing similarly. She teamed a mustard lace appliqué cardigan by L'Wren Scott with cream linen trousers that allowed her to take part in a quick tennis rally!

Michelle has worn L'Wren Scott numerous times in the past but perhaps the outfit was even more politically thought through.  Because even though L'Wren Scott is American born she's the partner of legendary British rocker Mick Jagger.  

Stay tuned for more live updates from the Prime Minister's Washington visit - including some stellar action and gorgeous gowns at The White House state dinner.
